Copy and paste minimal XHTML Transitional Skeleton

I'm always creating basic HTML pages by hand, writing out the same skeleton code time and time again. I've decided to create a page with some basic HTML which I can now use to copy & paste to save time. Here is the most basic XHTML framework where you can just fill in the blanks.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <title>Your Title</title>
  <meta name="Description" content="Your description" />
  <meta name="Keywords" content="Your, comma delimited, keywords" />
  <meta equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="your-css-stylesheet.css" />
</head >
  <!-- Your Content -->

This tends to have problems with UTF-8 content. I just did a quick test in firefox, no digging. Using upper-cased "UTF-8" instead fixed that for me.
